Several of the modules listed below are available for study in Semester One (September-December) or Semester Two (January-May) and also at the short course level.
The modules are taught by online distance learning allowing shared experiences for all students, wherever they may be located. Participants interact amongst themselves and their lecturers through discussion boards, presentations and podcasts, and they have access to hundreds of primary sources through our virtual learning environment.
The programmes offer you the chance to acquire a capacity to write competently at postgraduate level and to reflect critically on major historical controversies and disputes. You will be given the opportunity to undertake your own research aided by world class experts in their own fields.
